About the property

Armstrong's Elk Farm

Our Rustic Log Cabin styled Bed and Breakfast located in Cornwallville, NY is a perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast.

Open year round, the changing seasons of the Catskills offer spectacular painted vistas and a myriad of outdoor activities to suit everyone's interests. The Fall season offers spectacular mountain views of foliage giving way to the crisp Winter snow painted countryside. Spring warmth renews the flowers and brightens the mountains with lush green foliage giving way to the warmth of a Summer evening. We'd love to have you any time.

Our accommodations are centrally located within a 20 mile radius encompassing the towns of Durham, Windham, Catskill and Hunter, which is only 2 1/2 hour drive from either the GWB or Boston, MA and just 45 minutes from Albany. It is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Here in the Catskills, you can hike, mountain bike, fish, hunt, downhill ski, cross country ski, kayak, canoe, tube, golf and so much more. Your host is an experienced marksman and outdoorsmen who can direct you to the best hunting and fishing spots in the area. Your host is also knowledgeable on conservation, farming, and going green providing you with an excellent learning opportunity. Of course, we are happy to help with other recommendations of local things to do, tailored to meet your interests.

We are also conveniently located nearby several major festivals including the award winning Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Hunter Mountain's Jam Fest, Irish Art Week, East Durham Irish Festival, International Celtic Festival at Hunter Mountain, the Catskill Mountain Thunder Motorcycle Rally plus others. The Catskills are also well known for its ski areas, golf courses, antique vendors and picturesque waterfalls, valley and mountain views.

After an exhilarating day outdoors, you can be comforted by knowing you can relax in an inviting, peaceful home atmosphere. Our log cabin is surrounded by 100 acres of pristine pastures and farmlands where you can see the elk herd grazing along with other wildlife sightings. In the warmer seasons, sit by our beautiful fish pond and fire pit or out on our two large decks and enjoy your cocktails and dinner. The beautiful rustic living area is quite cozy for snuggling up in front of the wood stove during the colder seasons.

Our well equipped kitchen is open for either your convenience to prepare lunch and dinner or for an added service, our expert culinary host will prepare additional meals or host a party for your friends. We also have a great outdoor grill for our guests to use.

We offer three eclectic styled bedrooms with a two bath. Our amenities include a great collection of books, board games and puzzles; wireless high speed internet access, a 40 inch flat screen TV with a DVD player and a selection of movies. Please see our amenities page for more details.

The most picturesque cabin.

We had a wonderful weekend in a "farm" like a dream.

Clean, quiet, surrounded by nature with millions of colors...

The place irradiates love and hospitality...

Thank you Les, and we hope to see you again and again.

What a great stay. Les is warm and inviting. His home is original and unique. There is so much to be admired.

The Elk on the farm is just an added bonus. So lovely and peaceful to watch roam.

Minutes to Windham, surrounded by many restuarants.

Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again.

Great Upstate Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great weekend getaway. The house is very clean and spacious for a small group or a few of your friends. Leslie was a wonderful host, always offering to help with anything, whether it be recommendations or just getting things for the weekend. If your looking to get away from the City, this is an easy and accessible spot, close to other towns and hiking trails to check-out.
